|Summary: The events of the last decade of the 20th century in Croatia initiated overall legilative changes in order to coincide with the European standards and practices. In the field of hunting, this meant the abandonment of the regal system and a transfer to the dominal system, the one that had been introduced back in 1870, while Croatia was a component part of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Thus has once again the hunting right been connected with land ownership. The Constitution of the Republic of Croatia, the Forest Law, the Law on Forest Protection, and the Law on Hunting are all very clear and under a strong principle of nature protection.Although clearly supporting the protection and preservation of the biological and ecological balance of the natural habitats of wild animals, the Law on Hunting enables the establishment of fenced game breeding areas ranging between 100 ha and 2,000 ha, allowing the game in numbers that disturb their natural relation with the habitat (Article 48 ZOL).|
Likewise, the Law on Hunting enables the law right by concession in state hunting areas (state forests) to home and foreign legal and physical persons for periods between twenty and forty years. Public contests, the choice of the best offer and contracts on hunting right concessions have been carried out in shortest time and, more importantly, during the Homeland War in the Republic of Croatia. The contract on hunting right concession is done between the Minister and the concessioner, without the influence of the forest agency with which the concessioner will share the area and the impacts upon it.
The hunting areas have been established quickly by expert commissions, with state areas and common hunting areas beeing separated, without any respect or knowledge of their natural character, not considering the migration range of the game. Disputable determination of the basic game stock with a routine making of hunting management plans have been brought fast and without any expertise and real control.
The establishment of the hunting productive areas and site quality have been done improperly, without sufficient precise indices, resulting in a series of wrong input data and, accordingly, final regulations on the game stock of particular species.
The ambition of the new hunting concession holders, in terms of breeding a surplus number of game and those game that does not correspond the given habitat, has caused a huge damage to the forest by multiplying the fencing and maintaining costs. The possibilities of natural regeneration of forest stands have been placed under question. Treated inadequately by the managing and surveying authorities, such violation of the law and the concession contract was resulted in a conflict between the forest and hunting managements. The powerful hunting lobby and the irresponsible governement control directed the damage on the expense of the forest.
Our efforts have been focused on integral, expert, professional and responsible management of the most valuable natural habitats of the rare and precious big game. In state hunting areas, a competent control should implement the law regulations on concession rights given to other legal or physical persons, for real protection of the forest, its stability, biodiversity and natural regeneration.
